With any hope, we have all safely summited and are well on our way back down Kilimanjaro. We are looking forward to the hotel tonight where we can take SHOWERS! Hopefully there are hot water and cold beers to be found in Arusha.
“Day 8. End trek, transfer to hotel
As we descend from Horombo, we begin to encounter more vegetation and the lower part of the route is through pine forest. We pass the traditional first camping place on the Marangu Route at the Mandara Huts and continue our descent to the Marangu Gate (1900m /6234ft.). After saying goodbye to our trek crew and picking up our all-important ascent certificates, we transfer to the group hotel in Arusha where we check in for an overnight stay. “
